Lovelock Relay Race Report

Congratulations to all that took part in the Lovelock Relays last weekend. Race 1: Our Social team of Rebecca Allnutt, Barbara Patrick, Rob Homan (Nee: Civil Service), and a Oliver O’Sullivan won the Social Grade. Rebecca’s time of 5:09 was fastest in the Grade and one of the fastest Female times of the day. This was followed up with a second (and unexpected) impressive run later in the day. It has to be said that Rob Homan looked a complete natural in the Blue and Gold, after he was strongly encouraged to wear a Hill City-University singlet.Race 2: Well done to the Hill City-University children that raced. We had three teams compete and there was some impressive and exciting runs.Race 3: The women were the big standout for the club on Saturday. The Senior Women team of Zara Geddes, Lila Rhodes, Liberty McIntyre Reet, and Liliana Braun withstood the pressure from the fast starting Leith senior women team and went on to claim a well deserved title. Liliana Braun ran the fastest time of the day (5:00) with a commanding performance on leg 4, with Zara One second behind in her time (5:01). Zara ran from the front pushing too hard for fellow competitors on leg 1.

In the Masters woman’s race Leia Silby, Kara Bryant, Georgy Pakeho, and Aly Craigie took first place. Aly recorded fastest time in 5:33, with Georgy third fastest in 5:55. Consistent performances across the legs proved too strong for the competing teams. Race 4: The Masters mens race provided much entertainment. Elliot O’Sullivans battle with Danny Baillie could be considered one of the best races of the day. Danny showing his speed and determination held Elliot off to give Leith the lead while running 3rd fastest masters time. Neale and Simon were the next to battle, with Neale extending the gap slightly. Both running strong legs. Gallien Chanalet-Quercy Had an excellent run against a determined Mark Geddes and build on Leiths lead. Oliver O’Sullivan was on the hunt for Richard Campbell. However, Richard had a great run, running second fastest time of the day and proving far too strong for Oliver to close the gap down. There was to be no tied race against these two this week.Race 5: Hill City-University’s team of Ben Wall, Nico Alvarez Ray-Virag, Jake Owen, Joe Mortimer, Alex Witt, and Joel Carman finished second to the Christchurch’s Whippets team. Ben Wall shocked the crowd and fellow competitors running 3:59 for the first leg and putting Hill City-University into the lead. However, the depth of talent in the whippets was too much for Hill City-University. There were a large number of impressive other performances, and times achieved across the club. Thanks to all that took part.
